New Ceramics from Angie Lewin, Sllipblog from Sarah and exhibitions from Laura Weston

May 7, 2014

Three catch ups and very newsworthy items for you all today.

Fishinkblog 7533 Angie Lewin 2

Angie Lewin has been working with Wiltshire potter John Julian Design to produce her own range of stylish tableware.

Her porcelain plates are available in two designs, Scarista and Meadow (each in two colour ways) – hand jollied and hand stencilled. The plates are very durable – oven proof and won’t fade in the dishwasher. Produced as a limited edition of 200 sets of each design, a small quantity of each will be also be available individually. Priced at £149.00 for a set of six plates or £28.00 individually (excluding postage and packing). You can find out more about how to buy them here. There’s also some rather lovely and summery Tote bags on the St Judes site.

If you’re in the London area, then there is a forthcoming exhibition of recent works by Angie Lewin and Alex Malcolmson from Thursday 15th May until Saturday 24th May 2014, at The Town House, 5 Fournier Street, Spitalfields, London E1 6QE. The exhibition takes place in an intimate gallery space hidden behind The Town House on Fournier Street in the heart of Spitalfields. The building dates from 1720 where silk weavers originally worked and plied their trade. Angie will be exhibiting a range of her limited edition prints – linocuts, wood engravings, screen prints and lithographs – whilst Alex will present a series of new box constructions, mixed media collages and three dimensional works.

Next ……my very talented school friend Sarah, has recently launched her blog, talking about her ceramics and the trials and tribulations of buying an old kiln and making sense of it’s settings etc without the aid of a manual !

Called simply Sllipblog (the extra ‘l’ is for Sarah’s initials, in case you were wondering) I’ll be looking forward to viewing more of Sarah’s humourous and detailed ceramics and seeing how her work develops. If any of my readers can offer any good kiln advice, please contact sarah here.

Sarah’s work will be featured in the Northern Potters Association exhibition which is on at the beautiful Didsbury Parsonage Trust on the last Bank holiday of May. Do call in if you’re in the Manchester area and see what creative work is on show.

Finally it was great yesterday to see the birds enjoying a downpour outside my studio window. The whole thing only lasted 10 minutes, but they were very excited and twittery afterwards : ) Happy tweeting to one and all !
